My deepest condolences to her family. I only came to know her briefly, but I have seen the family she raised and the legacy she has left behind. The world is definitely better because she was apart of it.

I first met my cousin Nancy when I we were just 13 she came over to England with her parents and brother bill.
We became so close and I visited her in West Allenhurst NJ the following year. We wrote to each other every week we were like the sisters we never had.
I came over again with my husband and stayed with Nancy and Marty and Brian when he was just two. Nancy was expecting Karen.
Nancy I have loved you and I know that you are now at peace and one day when we see you again you will be the person I remember full of fun and at peace and when we meet again we will laugh forever at the goodness of God who brought us by His love to an eternity with Him until then….. see you soon ❤️

My memories of Nancy go back to our first meeting at just 13 at her grandmothers in England affectionately known as Lizzie. We hit it off as soon as we met and spent every day of her trip together. We write to each other weekly and the filllowing year I travelled to West Allenhust NJ to visit. I have the fondest memories of Nancy a sister I always wanted to have.
I spoke at length to her just over a month ago and I am so grateful for that time. She was a wonderful friend I loved her. And I know she must be free of her worries and restrictions. Oh Nancy at peace at last my cousin my friend where did the time go. Rest up now enjoy eternity with love and comfort at last. I will always hold you in my heart dear dear Nancy until we meet again Shalom shalom❤️

My connection with Nancy was through Elton John, whom we both loved. She very kindly offered to get me backstage at one of his Las Vegas performances, and we met for the first time. I will never forget her kindness and generosity. What a special lady. So sorry to hear this news. Rest in peace, dear Nancy.

I was saddened to learn of Nancy´s passing. We were friends from elementary school through high school and beyond. We shared a love of the Beatles and music. Nancy helped others as a nurse. But I knew her best as a creative person, who brought joy to audiences as a talented guitarist and singer. I will always remember the fun times we had together.

My family and I send our deepest sympathy to her family, friends and to Robert.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
